Another healthy idea for New Year’s Resolutions! We are not really fond of dressings, so I try to find new ways to enrich a salad with flavor. I thought of steaming up some vegetables and adding them in this green salad. Drizzle some olive oil on it, some freshly squeezed lemon juice and sea salt sprinkled over the top. We loved the outcome! Especially when the steamed vegetables are still warm, they act like little juicy surprises bursting with flavor! Here is how to make the steamed vegetable salad (you can use whatever vegetables you like):
Wash all the vegetables very well. Chop the raw green salad in a bowl. Peel the beets and carrots. If you have a steamer, the next step is quick. We do not have a steamer so we steam our vegetables the old fashion way by boiling water and placing the vegetables over the boiling water. Steam the carrots, broccoli and beets for twenty minutes. Combine the vegetables with the raw salad and drizzle the olive oil, lemon juice and a dash of sea salt over the top. Serve.
